The traditional ceiling rose is a well-known ceiling decoration, which has been used over centuries. It transforms the plain ceiling and is often used as a light fitting or a chandelier feature, which only makes it look more beautiful. It is typically made from plaster but nowadays there are various options available. Generally, the shape of the ceiling rose is round or ovular with unique decorative fringe around it. It is available in a broad range of designs from traditional to modern, and from simple to a intricate.

You can paint the ceiling rose with the same colour as the ceiling, or if you want it to stand out, you can choose a different colour. Ceiling roses can be more attractive and fantastic if you install additional decorations, such as other trims and mouldings including architraves and cornices to your ceiling. If you plan to install new lights or a chandelier along with the ceiling rose, it is better to call up an electrician to get done the wiring work.

Ceiling Rose Installation

When you decide to install ceiling roses, you need to make sure you have the right tools first. Here is a list of what you need to prepare and how to start.

Tools to Prepare

  • Cornice adhesive
  • Adhesive Spreader
  • Sponge
  • Sandpaper
  • Screws
  • Drill
  • Knife
  • Nails
  • Measuring Tape
  • Dust Mask


Before beginning the installation, we need to ensure everything is well-prepared. If you were pairing your ceiling rose with chandelier, make sure the light fitting is completed by an electrician first. Once you’ve done the light fitting, you can proceed to drill the centre part for the wiring line.

Next, you need to deal with the ceiling surface. If your ceiling has wallpaper surface, you need to peel it from the area where the ceiling rose will be installed. For a painted ceiling, use sandpaper to remove the paint. Don’t forget to wear a dust mask before you start. Once the ceiling is bare the adhesive can glue the ceiling rose effectively. After completing these preparation steps you can proceed to the installation.

Installation Steps

  • First, you need to mix up the cornice adhesive and then apply it evenly on the back of the ceiling rose with an adhesive spreader.
  • Next, after applying the adhesive, place the rose in the right position. Install it and make sure you don’t block the light fitting wiring hole.
  • Press the rose against the ceiling for a few minutes.
  • Ensure the adhesive is totally dry. You can secure the rose by screwing the rose to the ceiling.
  • Once the adhesive perfectly set, get a damp sponge to clean any excess adhesive around the ceiling rose.
